A major change in thyroid setpoint regulation occurs in various clinical conditions such as critical illness and psychiatric disorders. As a first step towards identifying determinants of these setpoint changes, we have studied the distribution and expression of thyroid hormone receptor (TR) isoforms, type 2 and type 3 deiodinase (D2 and D3), and the thyroid hormone transporter monocarboxylate transporter 8 (MCT8) in the human hypothalamus and anterior pituitary. Although the post-mortem… Expand
Central regulation of the hypothalamo-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis: focus on clinical aspects.
TLDR
Congenital or acquired dysfunction of the hypothalamus or pituitary gland may result in central hypothyroidism (CeH), and a mutation in the immunoglobulin superfamily member 1 gene was reported as a novel cause of X-linked, apparently isolated CeH occurring in neonates, children and adults. Expand
Understanding the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Thyroid Axis in Mct8 Deficiency
TLDR
The observed changes within the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axis that result in altered TH production and secretion are summarized. Expand
The hypothyroid brain
The thyroid gland is controlled by a feedback system, the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axis, and produces thyroid hormone (TH), which plays a critical role in growth, development and cellularExpand
Hypothalamic effects of thyroid hormone
TLDR
An overview of the literature suggests that intrahypothalamic T3 can have profound effects on hepatic glucose production and insulin sensitivity, energy expenditure in BAT, cardiovascular function and feeding behavior, and the clinical relevance of these metabolic effects in the chronic setting remains to be established. Expand
Thyroid hormone and the developing hypothalamus
TLDR
There is evidence suggesting a role for the hypothalamus in the regulation of TH concentrations during the fetal period anticipating birth, and a decrease in expression of proteins involved in TH signaling towards the end of pregnancy may indicate a lower fetal TH demand. Expand
5.08 – Thyroid Hormones and Brain Development
TLDR
This chapter is a review of the pathophysiology of TH action in the brain with a survey of the genes regulated by THs in brain and a description of clinical situations caused by defective TH signaling in an attempt to explain these syndromes with present knowledge of TH physiology and action at the molecular level. Expand
63 – Thyroid Hormones and Brain Development
TLDR
An analysis is made of the factors that control the tissue concentration and action of the active hormone triiodothyronine, such as thyroidal secretion, tissue expression of deiodinases, cellular transporters, and nuclear receptors, and a description of clinical situations caused by defective thyroid hormone signaling is described. Expand
Thyroid Hormones in Brain Development and Function
TLDR
The sydromes of Resistance to Thyroid Hormones due to receptor mutations, especially TRα, cause variable affectation of brain function and a deep understanding of the pathophysiology of these syndromes is needed to allow designing appropriate therapies. Expand
AUTHOR COPY ONLY
TLDR
Dynamic changes in HPT axis setpoint regulation as well as TH metabolism at the peripheral organ level is flexible and dynamic, and may adapt the organism in an optimal way to a range of environmental challenges. Expand
The thyrotropin-releasing hormone gene is regulated by thyroid hormone at the level of transcription in vivo.
TLDR
It is shown that in the euthyroid state, TRH transcription is present both in the PVH and anterior/lateral hypothalamus and that genomic elements surrounding the TRH gene mediate its regulation by T(3). Expand

Neuroanatomical pathways for thyroid hormone feedback in the human hypothalamus.
TLDR
The distribution of type II and type III deiodinase (D2 and D3) as well as the recently identified T(3) transporter, monocarboxylate transporter 8 (MCT8), in the human hypothalamus is reported. Expand
Novel neuroanatomical pathways for thyroid hormone action in the human anterior pituitary.
TLDR
A novel neuroanatomical model for thyroid hormone feedback on the human pituitary is proposed, with a central role for FS cells in thyroid hormone activation, which thus play an important role in the suppression of TSH secretion by circulating thyroxine. Expand
Hypothalamic thyroid hormone feedback in health and disease.
TLDR
Results suggest that the prohormone thyroxine is taken up in glial cells that convert T4 into the biologically active T3 via the enzyme D2; T3 is subsequently transported to TRH producing neurons in the PVN where it may bind to TRs and/or may be degraded into inactive iodothyronines by D3. Expand
The monocarboxylate transporter 8 linked to human psychomotor retardation is highly expressed in thyroid hormone-sensitive neuron populations.
TLDR
Results strongly indicate that MCT8 plays an important role for proper central nervous system development by transporting TH into neurons as its main target cells. Expand
Thyroid hormone receptor expression in the human hypothalamus and anterior pituitary.
TLDR
The distribution of thyroid hormone receptor (TR) isoforms in the human postmortem hypothalamus and anterior pituitary is described using immunocytochemistry and a set of polyclonal antisera raised against the specific isoforms of the human TR are described. Expand
Decreased hypothalamic thyrotropin-releasing hormone gene expression in patients with nonthyroidal illness.
TLDR
This is the first study to correlate premortem serum concentrations of thyroid hormones with postmortem gene expression of identified neurons in the human hypothalamus, suggesting an important role for TRH cells in the pathogenesis of NTI. Expand
Thyroid hormone regulates TRH biosynthesis in the paraventricular nucleus of the rat hypothalamus.
TLDR
A nearly twofold increase in proTRH mRNA was observed in hypothyroid animals; this increase could be obliterated by levothyroxine treatment, suggesting an inverse relation between circulating thyroid hormone and pro TRH mRNA. Expand
Simultaneous changes in central and peripheral components of the hypothalamus-pituitary-thyroid axis in lipopolysaccharide-induced acute illness in mice.
TLDR
The results suggested almost simultaneous involvement of the whole HPT axis in the downregulation of thyroid hormone metabolism during acute illness. Expand
Feedback regulation of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH): mechanisms for the non-thyroidal illness syndrome.
TLDR
The non-thyroidal illness syndrome, characterized by low circulating thyroid hormone levels yet suppression of TRH gene expression in hypophysiotropic neurons, is due to alteration in the regulatory factors that modulate TRH genes expression to result in central hypothyroidism. Expand
Regional distribution of type 2 thyroxine deiodinase messenger ribonucleic acid in rat hypothalamus and pituitary and its regulation by thyroid hormone.
TLDR
The results indicate that tanycytes may have a previously unrecognized integral role in feedback regulation of TSH secretion by T4, and is the source of the high D2 activity previously found in the ARC-ME region of the hypothalamus. Expand
